Description of qualifications:

<p>Climate change, mass migration and terrorism: Effective international cooperation and institutions are more important than ever. But what makes international institutions effective?</p> <p>This course answers this question by discussing up-to-date theoretical and empirical research on international institutions. We will examine when and why states pursue greater institutionalisation at the international level. By comparing international institutions, we will analyse why some of them function better than others. Specifically, we focus on institutional decision rules and we will focus on the relevance of domestic politics during the decision-making, ratification and implementation stages. Course material will cover a variety of international institutions and treaties, including regional organisations, preferential trade agreements, the WTO, the IMF, the Worldbank, the Paris Agreement and the UN.</p> <p>The first part of the course introduces the most prominent theoretical approaches, with a focus on problems of collective action and cooperation among states. Specifically, we look into the origins and reforms of international institutions, political behaviour and decision-making within international institutions as well as the compliance with international agreements. The second part of the course has a stronger focus on the empirical application of those theories. Students will work in groups that analyse a selected international institution.</p> <p>Having completed the teaching part of the course, participants will concentrate on writing their synopsis in preparation of the oral exam. The exam builds on the group work and students are asked to apply selected theories of the course to a self-chosen case. The teacher is available for help and supervision in selecting a meaningful case for the synopsis. All participants should read the texts before the start of the bloc course. They are required to take part in class-room discussions. Furthermore, all participants are required to actively participate in group assignments during the teaching part.</p> For this course, participants are expected to know the most prominent theoretical approaches from the sub-fields of comparative politics as well as international relations.
